Working with Adults Who Have Earliest Wounds: A PPN Somatic Perspective
Our earliest layers of experience form the roots of health on every level: body, mind and spirit. These earliest experiences include preconception, conception, the prenatal period, birth and after birth. Many practitioners of all kinds now seek to know more about how to work with earliest trauma in adults, especially with the increased awareness of developmental or complex trauma, and in the impact of the Adverse Childhood Experiences study.
Often called early developmental trauma, recognizing, reaching and healing ruptures or interruptions in development from this early time are increasingly seen as the cracks in the foundation of human health. Current healing science now includes overwhelming childhood experiences and ancestral patterns; the prenatal and perinatal period is the missing piece.
Once the patterns from earliest trauma are recognized, they cannot be unseen. Our challenge is to give the tools of recognition to practitioners of all kinds while laying the groundwork for prevention, which is doable in our world today.
We have invited five practitioners who work in the field of prenatal and perinatal somatics to help share with you tools, skills and their approach to helping with adults with earliest wounds.
